It’s not a surprise .. I love the south.

Each Monday at 9:00pm est, I host a #southernchat Twitter chat. Each week during our hour-long chat, we have a southern-influenced guest, five questions to chat thru, and most weeks, a southern sponsor to host a giveaway for all who participate in the chat.


I invite anyone with a Twitter account to join in the chat but southern brands, bloggers, artisans & southerners themselves are ideal participants to join in the fun. See what’s going on with #southernchat:

be a guest on #southernchat:

Interested in being a guest for one of our upcoming chats? I am always looking for interesting southerners {because they are ALL interesting!} to join us! Musicians, business owners, artisans, brands, media / sites, bloggers, chefs, authors & more are invited – the more diverse the better as we all explore the south by getting to know our guests. Ideally we ask that our guests also agree to “sponsor” the chat for the week by providing the week’s giveaway item or experience to provide the most robust experience for our guests.
